TRAVELS: Falkensteiner Hotel Schladming

On Sunday, I hopped into my little VW Polo and headed south-east from Vienna. The final destination was Schladming in Styria for a bit of fun in the snow (as I am sure you guys have already seen on Instagram). I was surprised that the drive only took about 2:40hrs and how easy it was to get there from Vienna. Upon arrival, I checked into the super cozy Falkensteiner Hotel Schladming, which was definitely love at first sight. It is hard to describe, but they have somehow managed to bring the feeling of a snug little mountain hut to a large hotel. All the rooms are furnished in beautiful wood from the area, they have red and green sofas and reading chairs throughout the hotel and the beds are pure bliss. Oh, and don’t even get me started on the awesome walk-in shower (with a little glass action next to the bed) and stunning white tiles in the bathroom. The gondola is literally a 3 minute walk from the hotel and their spa area is pure bliss. The only thing that was missing during those 3 wonderful days: Mike! I definitely want to come back with him for some relaxing down-time in the mountains

TRAVELS: ME Ibiza – Hotel Review

Since a lot of you had asked where we stayed in Ibiza, I wanted to share the hotel and our personal opinion about it with you guys. We stayed at the newly opened (June 2014) ME Ibiza which is part of the Melia Hotels. To be honest, I found the hotel via Instagram, since they had had some well-known bloggers (Song of Style, Lovely Pepa, …) visit during the Summer. The facilities and grounds looked gorgeous from their photos and I was sold instantly.

TRAVELS: Portoroz, my love!

Our annual trip to Portoroz has become my personal highlight of the summer – I start a countdown in April … for August (just sayin’). I put together a huge travel diary for The Daily Dose, but also wanted to share a few snapshots with you guys. There’s nothing better than a summery get-away that is just a 4-5 hour drive away. Snug between Italy (where we visited the Castello di Duino) and Croatia, Portoroz also offers plenty of day-trip opportunities, not to mention the crystal clear ocean and amazing breakfast buffet at the Kempinski Palace Hotel. Have any of you been to Slovenia? Or do you have any hidden gems for getaways that aren’t too far from Vienna?

TRAVEL: Hello from Frankfurt

I can’t believe it’s already been 3 weeks since I got back from beautiful Montreux, time seems to fly by at the moment. Speaking of flying – I just touched down in Frankfurt, Germany (first time ever, except layovers at the airport) and checked into The Pure Hotel to get ready for a fun evening with Fossil and lots of lovely ladies. I rarely get to see all the blogger girlies from Germany, so tonight is like a little re-union. Excited! While I am off to get dressed for the event I leave you with a few first impressions from today:
